claudio in vatican city. when's the latest? >> reporter: hi, toure. now the countdown is finally started, of course. well, there's no -- usually people don't have the chance to see the -- to know when the end of an end happens because in the past the pope had to die before a new pope could be voted in. this time, we have a date. 28th of february and we got a lot of reaction to the announcement of pope benedict xvi that he is resigning. first of all, look at how he -- well, he abdicated rather than resigning. let's see how. he did that during a low-key affair this morning the vatican meeting with cardinals. wasn't a big deal and he said -- his speech made it in latin. not italian or english or a comprehensible language to most people and it was down to somebody from a local press office, local wire agency to actually figure out that he actually said, well look, i'm going to abdicate. even the way that he resigned or -- sorry. abdicated was kind of low key and he did it as he's done the -- as he's leaved his pontificate all along. low key, suited with the personality. so different

. the 118 cardinals who elect the new pope, andrea, will stay in a dormitory inside vatican city. they are not supposed to have any contact with the outside world. once that process begins. we'll see if that happens. it took about a day and a half to elect cardinal ratzinger to make hem pope benedict xvi last time. this time it could take a lot longer. just, you know, peek looking at sort of the early candidates note there's no clear favorite among the vatican experts. at this point in time a couple of interesting things to keep in mind as we watch this. most of the electors -- i think all of the electorses all the cardinals were appointed by john paul ii and benedict xvi. the growth in the catholic church these days is in latin america. is in asia and is in africa. will they go outside europe and possibly choose a pope from one of the other church is growing? that's one of the questions a lot of people are asking today. >> the author of the pew book evangelical catholicism, deep reform in the 21st century church. got a copy here. just hot off the presses. to write this book you deeply

chicago. we can do without all these major city that is were largely black and brown. the republican party today is still playing on that script. as we know with the demographic shifts, that's a losing proposition if you stay with it for so long. what they've done is instead, they have recruited some very able candidates, ted cruz, marco rubio, people of color who can carry the gop banner who are certainly absolute conservatives, but the issue is it is not who carries the banner. it's what that flag stands for. and unless and until the republican party does some real work, real hard look at its policy and just how, you know, the animosity they have had through black and brown communities, until they do that work i don't see a pathway back. >> in another article roger says this about the president. i'm quoting him. he's too busy getting the middle class to hate rich people, blacks to hate whites. i'm now going to quote the third sentence, the third sentence of the president's inaugural address last month. what binds this nation together is not the colors of our skin, nor the tenets of

city where the conclave of the cardinals will convene. they will cast their votes in the cysteisistine chapel and th that a new pope may be elected by the start of holy week march 24th. we are joined by the rome bureau chief, claudio. and claudio, what surprised me the most is the timing of this. i know lots of hints and everybody is looking backwards that he seemed to hint that he would leave before he died in office, but the idea of doing this in the middle of lent. >> certainly nobody expected this. well, this is also the era of the faith meaning that most analysts thought that he will wait until at least next year to make a drastic decision if he was to make a drastic decision at all. nobodycted him to follow ip up on the hint in 2012 that if his strength leaves him that he could not perform his duty of the 1.2 billion catholics around the world, then he would resign, but nobody really took that seriously, because i mean, john paul ii, his predecessor was 85 and he could barely walk and speak. he was mumbling and he still didn't resign. and so, a pope has not resigned for 700 years
